Tammy McCann - Music Institute of Chicago Artist-in-Residence

Music Institute of Chicago Artist-in-Residence Tammy McCann is an internationally recognized jazz vocalist whose powerful, sultry, and soulful voice paints pictures and tells stories by merging classical vocal technique and gospel aesthetic with jazz to create a sound that is completely her own. Named “Best Jazz Vocal Performance” by the Chicago Tribune, arts critic Howard Reich said of McCann, “a voice that soars in all registers, at all tempos, on all occasions...a voice that inspires wonder!”

McCann has performed with Ramsey Lewis, Willie Pickens,  and Von Freeman and toured as a “Raelette” with the great Ray Charles.  In addition, she has thrilled audiences at some of the nation’s premier jazz venues including Birdland, the Blue Note, Jazz at Lincoln Center’s Dizzy’s Club Coca Cola, and Chicago’s own Jazz Showcase.
